Chills & Thrills: Frightfully Good Books and Movies

It is the time to celebrate all things spooky.

The Bentley Library staff has put together a display of DVDs that are full of chills and thrills for your Halloween season. Check the DVD display shelves throughout the month of October. We hope you are bewitched by our picks!

In addition to DVDs, plenty of spooky content is available through our streaming film collections, Kanopy and Swank.  If you are interested in learning about horror as a medium, why not start with the master and stream a Talk from Hitchcock himself available through Films on Demand.

Other horror tales and ghost stories are available on our shelves and through Overdrive, including the classics, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Bram Stoker’s Dracula and newer authors, Stephen King or Joe Hill. Don’t have time to commit to a whole novel? Why not check out a collection of short stories such as American Fantastic Tales or Flight or Fright!

Do you have a favorite pick you would like to recommend? Just post a comment with the title and your name.

Happy Haunting.

On Display: New and Notable Nonfiction

Need an idea for a research paper? Just want the latest on a topic? Here is the display for you.

These books were chosen from the stacks by our reference librarians to showcase titles that may have escaped your notice when they were originally added to the shelves. You will recognize some of these titles and authors from bestseller lists, while others were chosen based on recommendations from professional and scholarly review sources or are on topics currently in the news.

Stop by the lobby to browse the display. We will continue to add new books that catch our eye as they arrive, so check back often!
